Hardness Testing – Wilson Rockwell Hardness Tester

Wilson Rockwell Hardness Tester

Available Methods and Accessories

  • 15 – 60 kg force load
  • Brinell, Rockwell, Vickers indenter tips

Sample Requirements

Less than 8 inches width and 9.5 inches height

Summary of Technique

Samples are pressed with an indenter tip at a certain load force for a discrete length of time. The difference in load applied and unloaded is recorded as the hardness value.

Information Provided & Detection Limits

Information on hardness across a sample, average hardness, and fracture toughness
